Live In Carer
We are experienced in providing long-term live in home care in Oxford. This enables clients to continue to enjoy living in their own home for as long as possible. We know that continuity is important to our clients and that’s why we aim to place carers for up to three months at a time. Sometimes carers will stay much longer. It can be challenging to find one carer to live-in long-term on an ongoing basis but very often our carers will return to the same client after taking a break.
Sometimes our clients only need a live in carer temporarily. This might be after a discharge from hospital, during periods of illness or as relief for a relative or other carer. At Oxford Aunts we are experienced in placing the right carer with our clients, no matter what the situation is.
How it works
Once a carer is placed with you they will follow a detailed care plan which is tailored specifically to your needs. They will live with you for the duration of their placement and provide person-centred care as detailed in the client care plan.
To ensure our carers are able to provide the best level of care it is important they have regular time off. In placements of up to two weeks breaks of at least three hours are required. In longer-term placements a more substantial break of approximately eight hours on one day each week, after the third week, is also required.
“I feel very fortunate that, given our urgent need we were allocated Clare. She was the ideal choice in age, temperament, experience, capability, willingness, insight, adaptability, sensibility, frugality, awareness and then some.”
